Here, in USA, every single restaurant and cafeteria would have corned beef and cabbage with either boiled or mashed potatoes and green something (jello, beer, whatever) on St. Patrick's Day. And everybody wears something (TSHirt, cap, hat, button, whatever) that says: "Kiss me! I am Irish!" :lol:

Going vegan is like starting your running career by entering ultra-marathons.

If you want to eat less, or almost no meat, do that. If you want to be more aware of where your food originates, do that too. Limit meat before trying to eliminate it. Don't try to eliminate other animal products until you've been vegetarian for a good while and see how you react to that. Don't do any of this until you're done growing. (I forget how old you are...sorry :))

Im already doing that and you don't need meat to help grow lol we don't need it at all as long as we get what we need which we can in this generation, Its actually funny how we try to perfect our birds diets making sure they eat healthy when most of us especially me cant do that for ourselves I literally eat and drink so much crap.
